Get ready to land on Mars! The Mars 2020 spacecraft, carrying the Perseverance rover, is already close to Mars, and the rover will land on February 18, 2021.  Join us Friday evening as astronomer Gerald McKeegan gives a Mars 2020 mission update. He’ll describe the final phase of the flight and the “seven minutes of terror” NASA controllers will undergo as Perseverance descends to the Martian surface.
